The new MacBook Pro 2018 can be so expensive

With a new MacBook Pro 2018 Apple yesterday conjured a surprise from the top hat . Both the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar are refreshed and have, for example, a quieter keyboard, a True Tone screen and a faster processor. But to buy a new MacBook Pro, you have to dig deep into the pouch – certainly if you take one with all the extra features.

Price MacBook Pro 2018 with Touch Bar [19659004] Would you like the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, and do you opt for the more expensive version? And would you like to upgrade with the fast i9 processor from Intel (instead of the i7), 32 GB RAM (instead of 16 GB) and 4 Terabyte SSD storage (instead of 512 GB)?

That’s almost three thousand euros more than the most exorbitant MacBook Pro of 2017. This is mainly because there is an option to expand your storage space to 4 TB, which is good for a ‘soft’ additional price of 3840 (!) euro. Last year it could expand to 2 TB, for which you pay € 1440. Also the option of the RAM expansion from 16 to 32 GB is new: this costs you 480.

MacBook Pro 2018 more expensive?

Nevertheless, the prices compared to last year are not really changed. The most expensive MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is a lot more expensive, but that is also because it has more options. The starting prices are the same: the cheapest 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar has a starting price of € 1999. For the larger 15-inch version, the price starts at 2799 euros.

The prices are the same, but that is not the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. He has received a True Tone screen and a quieter keyboard. And under the bonnet there is a faster chip: the i7 processor of the 8th generation (Coffee Lake).

The most expensive Mac

The most expensive MacBook Pro (7959 euros) is not the most expensive Mac out there. If you feel like spending even more money, you have to go to the iMac Pro . If you complete the iMac Pro with 18 cores with 4 TB SSD, 128 GB RAM and the Radeon Pro Vega with 16 GB VRAM, you get a price tag of € 15.508.
